Jeremiah Brown is a badass athlete with the soul of a writer. This is not your average, sanitized account of the path to Olympic glory--it's a brutally honest, funny, and at times horrifying book about what it really takes to change your own life.
A gutsy, unflinching and ultimately inspiring peek beyond the Olympic podium at the high cost of chasing precious metal—be it gold, silver or bronze. Jeremiah Brown writes the way he raced, with rage and pain and power. He holds nothing back.
Startlingly frank, at times wrenching, Jeremiah Brown's account of his journey to an Olympic medal is an inspiration--not just for athletes but for anyone who is facing a challenge they think is insurmountable.
